I was born and bred in Virginia Beach, VA and couldn’t have this blog going without saying something about my hometown. As it relates to travel, Virginia Beach is an excellent place for getting away on weekends. The Shenandoah Mountains are only a 4 hour drive West along the Blue Ridge Parkway, Washington DC is less than 4 hours away, the Outerbanks of North Carolina are less than 2 hours away, and Norfolk’s Airport is very easy to get to and through.
Most of my friends, I grew up with, always wanted to get out of Virginia Beach, but people typically don’t see what’s right in front of them. Virginia Beach is an incredible place to live, but I’ll save that argument for another time. I can honestly say the more I travel, the more I appreciate Virginia Beach.
In the spirit of this blog, here are some photos I’ve taken from around the area.
